america getting tax cuts. great for the big guys but problem is they're all c corps where most of us are s corp.s. so our revenue flows down individually. so we're tacked at individual rate. that is just wrong if they gave us the tax cut we could go out a do things like hire people and buy new equipment and invest in our business. but, no, they'reot going to do that. neil: a lost you pay at the top rate anyway, that top individual rate. that is almost 4. you know, butch, that it means, ek we're handing out favorses and benefits and nice little promises and goodies, you got left out. >> when will it stop, neil? i'm afraid to open a newspaper. i read it about other day. i called my accountant. what does it mean for you? it means you're paying 12% less than you are. isn't that ridiculous. with 12% more mone hire two people with benefits all year long or put people to work a buy more equipment. corporations doesn't need that. we need this. neil: small business accounts foremost of the hiring in this country and most of the economic activity. to patty's point, david, i don't mind certainly big
qaeda thought it could strike again in america, it would certainly like to try and do so. this is something that i think we should be paying close attention to. i think it should heighten our appreciation of our intelligence gathering assets like the electronic surveillance that the national security agency does. whether nsa used one of its programs that's come under criticism, xkeystroke or prism of others, obviously we don't know. i can tell you going forward knowing there's a threat out there, these are exactly the kinds of programs that we should be using to gather data from a wide variety of sources. >> yes. >> to sift through it, to try to find those needles in the hay stack before they strike. >> thank you, ambassador bolton. we won't speculate on how the details came. we'll just be glad that it's being monitored. thanks for joining us. we are taking this very seriously. we're considering our coverage on the al qaeda terror threat all day on fox news. keep it here for all the latest breaking developments. kelly? >>> iran is swearing in its newly elected president.

to terrorize us. if we ever take the bait and come home and try to create fortress america, we'll have another 9/11. we have to show resolve, but we have to be smart. i'm going to egypt with senator mccain very soon. i know it's dangerous, but we need to be there with our diplomats giving the unified message to egypt. do not let these people drive us out of the mideast. do not make us abandon our friends like yemen, israel, jordan. we can't let al qaeda get away with this. we have to stand up to them. finally, after benghazi, they're on steroids. they attacked our consulate and killed our ambassador. a year has passed, and no one's paid a price. after benghazi, these al qaeda types are really on steroids thinking we're weaker and they're stronger. >> senator, i want to talk to you about the egyptian trip and other things after the break. quickly, when are you leaving for egypt? >> very soon. and to the members of congress who want to reform the nsa program, great. if you want to gut it, you make us much less safe, and you're putting our nation at risk. we need to have policies in place that ca

closing. now domestically. why the higher alert here in america? >> well, quite frankly, martha, because this threat was so specific as to how enormous it was going to be and also there's certain dates given, but it didn't specify where it's going to be and the assumption is that it's probably most likely to happen in the middle east at or about one of the embassies but there's no guarantee of that at all. it basically could be in europe, it could be in the united states, it could be a series of combined attacks, the same concept as the 2006 liquid explosive planned attacks, whether there are going to be a series of attacks carried out almost simultaneously, so we're ready for everything. this is what it's about and the administration i think has tried to first with the embassies, then with the global travel advisory and also letting state and local governments know over the last several days of the nature of this threat that so we can be on guard so this is a wake-up call. al qaeda is stronger than it was before 9/11 because it's mutated and it spread and it's spread in different direct

task force at the new america foundation and former senior policy adviser commissioner of the palestinian refugee agency, jeremy, president and founder of political home for pro israel pro peace americans. an msnbc contributor and foreign policy analyst for newsweek and managing director of the washington institute and former senior director for middle east affairs at the national security council. thank you all for joining me. i want to start with you. how important is it this happens now under this secretary of state and this president? >> the urgency is real. if they don't achieve peace now, the spiraling is real. palestinian authority likely could collapse. israelis would have to go back in and assume full civil and military control of the west bank, violence would erupt. in the context of the region you described, violence there sets off sparks around the whole region, so this an incredibly important moment and incredibly high stakes decision by the administration to go for it at this moment. >> it's not entirely unheard of for a second term american president to p
. surely a transformation of america might include some issues that would come before the supreme court. let's bring in our guests. thanks to you boning for being here. i want to start with you and start with legislation. let's look at cannon 2-b that the federal judges other than the supreme court has to follow. it reads if part a judge should not allow family, social, political or other relationships to ip flewens judicial conduct or judgment. a judge should neither lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests on the judge or other nor convey a or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge. seems likes other justices would have a problem following that. >> yes and as you said, and this is remarkable, every judge in the federal district court of appeals level has to abide by a code of conduct. but these nine justices have said they don need to abide by a code. justice roberts said justices will consult the code but they haven't yet agreed to be bound by the code. and last week, four senators and one hou
